This week in the digital economy.

Fasten your seatbelts: we’ve got a lot to talk about this week.

Firstly – we had a great finish to the Innovation and Design Thinking Module on the MBA at the end of last week. Thanks to everyone for their support. The students presented new ideas to the Sony Music execs….who loved what they saw and heard!!
Special thanks to our guest speakers: Harvey Wade, David Frohlich, and Mark Thompson.
And a very big thank you to Travis Street and Elvin Turner for delivering lots of great material with the students, and helping Prof Alan Brown to keep the whole show on the road.
Next – this article quite nicely captures a lot of what we tell students and businesses about testing ideas…..see what you think!
